As Benoy strengthens its presence in Malaysia, the international award-winning firm of Architects, Masterplanners, Interior and Graphic Designers, has welcomed Associate Director Nina Stiff and Project Coordinator Shen Fei Lam, to Benoy in Kuala Lumpur this month.
As part of Benoy’s global network, Kuala Lumpur provides a vital on-the-ground presence in Malaysia and the burgeoning Southeast Asia region. Capitalising on the firm’s ‘One Benoy’ approach and the accessibility of resources and talent between its studios, Kuala Lumpur taps into the immediate support of the larger Hong Kong and Singapore studios and also London to reinforce the greater British brand as a whole.
“We are thrilled to welcome Nina and Shen Fei to Benoy in Kuala Lumpur. Nina and Shen Fei both hail from Malaysia and in their roles will couple their invaluable local understanding with Benoy’s tradition of British design excellence to support our expanding and diverse portfolio in the country,” says Simon Bee, Global Design Director.
Benoy continues to build the company’s reputation in Malaysia with major contracts including Sime Darby’s transport-oriented development in the heart of Subang Jaya and the Sabah Government’s 314ha Tanjung Aru Eco Development masterplan. Further developments in the capital including Four Seasons Place and the Puchong Prima Mixed-Use Development have followed alongside upcoming projects in other states. Looking wider, Benoy is actively working in neighbouring Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and the Philippines.
Continuing to increase its presence in the country, this month Benoy’s Team was invited to take part in the trade delegation for the UKTI GREAT Week in Malaysia and Singapore promoting British business abroad. Later in September, the firm’s Global Design Director, Simon Bee, will share his expertise as a keynote speaker at the Mixed-Use Development Conference to be held in Jakarta.
“Malaysia is one of Southeast Asia’s largest economies and the opportunity for Benoy to contribute high-quality and innovative design to shape the future of the country is very exciting. Benoy has displayed its on-going commitment to the market and I look forward to extending and reinforcing our service to our current clients and those we will have the opportunity to work with in future,” says Nina Stiff.
